One take at a time

About me

Born into a family that practically breathes tennis, I spent my early childhood days huddled together with my loved ones, watching the electrifying rallies of the legendary Rafael Nadal. Such a unique experience forged a lifelong love for the sport in me. Before joining EssentiallySports, I honed my skills while working for a regional website, covering a variety of sports. Now, at ES, I have had the opportunity to combine my passion for tennis with the skills that I gained from my previous job. My analysis goes beyond the scoreboards, diving deep into the nuances of the game, dissecting strategies, and highlighting the human stories that make tennis more than just a sport. Throughout my time here, I have focused on covering the biggest tournaments, from ATP Masters to Grand Slams. Apart from tennis, exploring the latest tech gadgets is another one of my passions.
